My name is Eric Kim I am a street photographer from Los Angeles with a passion in interacting with my subjects, especially getting close to them. I have shot street photography all around the world including places such as Paris, Rome, Florence, Venice, Prague, London, Lebanon, Korea, Chicago, and San Francisco.
I am also fortunate enough to do street photography as a living through workshops. I have recently taught workshops in Beirut, Switzerland, the UK, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago. I also have had the great pleasure of doing collaborations with Leica, Magnum, as well as Invisible Photographer Asia.
The candid images that you see in his work are of people in their natural environments. I also like to occasionally use flash with my subjects and get really close to them. After I take photographs of people I always make sure to smile and say thank you. Believe it or not, 95% of people smile and say thank you back to me.
